How do you do in big crowds? Or in places where you don't know anyone? Sometimes it can feel very overwhelming to be around people in general, not to mention those times where you feel like you're being judged or are the center of attention. This is what can be classified as social anxiety– the fear of social situations that involve interaction with other people.

Essentially, there's this crazy fear that you're being negatively judged and evaluated by other people, especially when you're the center of attention. It's a real thing that so many people struggle with on a daily basis, but most won't openly admit – for fear of being judged – makes sense, right? No, it doesn't make sense, LOL. It's an irrational fear that continues in cycles and some people just live with it, while others do something about it.

If you've ever been out in public and all of a sudden get dry mouth, sweaty palms shaky hands, nervousness or a racing heart for no reason, you probably have social anxiety to some extent, but luckily there's so many different ways to treat this and eventually overcome this annoying phobia. One way is by medication, and when I say medication, I mean microdosing THC/CBD :)

The benefits of microdosing are endless, but it's basically when you take super low doses of THC and/or CBD in order to feel the effects that cannabis has on your joints, emotions and general bodily feelings without being super spaced out or high as a kite, which could actually make you more anxious and fearful in social settings. Kiva Confections, a brand we love to love, has perfected and was one of the first to every do cannabis infused mints for everyday use. They're small, discreet and literally a mint, so you can pop of these 2.5mg babies in your mouth to both calm your nerves and keep your breath fresh.
